I was searching for something else this Throwback Thursday when I came across this fascinating World War II era, early 50’s U.S. Army documentary video about Alexandria, Virginia. The Army called Alexandria a ‘City of Understanding’. Is that still true today?  How many areas and buildings can you recognize from that era?
